Chief Minister Kirankumar Reddy on Tuesday criticised opposition parties including the Telugu Desam, the YSR Congress and others for not appreciating the development activities being taken up by his Government and on the other hand finding fault with it. He expressed the hope that people would continue to support the ruling Congress party in the 2014 elections with the effective implementation of new policies and schemes including “Amma Hastam” under which 9 essentials would be supplied for Rs 185 to 2.25 crore families in the State.

He laid the foundation stone at Tekkali on Tuesday for the construction of National Institute of Electronics and Information Technology with Rs 50 crore. He also launched “Amma Hastam” scheme by distributing packets containing essentials to women at the public meeting at Tekkali.

He spoke about the initiatives of his Government such as implementation of SC ST Sub-Plan and Mee Seva scheme. “Despite the opposition from the TDP and the YSRCP, we could pass SC ST Sub Plan in the Assembly and we have introduced Amma Hastam scheme. People from downtrodden sections would get decent livelihood with our programmes,” he said.

Union Minister Killi Kruparani also spoke.

The Chief Minister also promised to construct an auditorium named after Dr.Ambedkar’s at Tekkali at a cost of Rs 50 crore.
